Anti-Aging Dentistry Q & A

What is anti-aging dentistry?

Anti-aging dentistry is a modern approach to keeping an aging mouth healthy and preventing serious oral health issues. As you age, your gums recede, which exposes softer tooth root tissues, and your risk of oral cancer increases. Plus, prescription medications you take may negatively affect your oral health.

Undergoing anti-aging dentistry care is important to:

  • Preserve your natural teeth
  • Prevent the need for extractions
  • Lower your risk of oral cancer 
  • Prevent gum loss due to gum disease

 

Antiaging dentistry also involves replacing any missing teeth you have, since missing teeth can cause your cheeks to sag and sink in. 

When should I see a dentist for antiaging treatments?

You should be coming to Maryland Smile Center twice a year for routine cleanings and exams. But outside of these preventive dental appointments, it’s important to come in for antiaging dental care if you notice:

  • Jaw pain
  • Dry mouth 
  • Mouth sores
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Chips or cracks
  • Bleeding, swollen gums 

 

As you get older, your risk for fragile teeth and dental decay increases. It’s important to come into Maryland Smile Center if you have extreme tooth sensitivity or find that you have a tooth that’s causing any level of discomfort. Your dedicated dentist examines you, checks your teeth and gums, and looks at digital X-ray images to get to the root of your symptoms.

Which antiaging dentistry treatments are available?

Maryland Smile Center offers modern antiaging dentistry treatments designed to restore the function of your teeth, while reviving your natural, beautiful smile. Some of the most common antiaging dentistry treatments available include:

  • Fillings 
  • Dental veneers 
  • Dental implants 
  • Composite bonding
  • Crown lengthening

Of course, if you’re missing multiple teeth or need to have your last remaining teeth extracted, dentures may still be necessary. But Maryland Smile Center can help you get fitted for modern dentures that are entirely natural looking and comfortable.
